    So, who else is getting this game? I have just received an e-mail from shopt.net confirming mine has been dispatch. Well 2 have, I must have gotten too excited and pre-ordered it twice without realising. Ah well.

    I have watched a couple developer videos in regards to the weather system which looks great. Normally in racing games I turn rain off because its just rubbish and rains the entire race. However the weather system on this is much better, it can down poor then dry up which should mix up the race. I’m sure I read its included in multiplayer which should be interesting. I don’t like the idea of the press interviews etc, I think they should just stick to the racing. We will see on Friday :)

    I liked the AI on Grid and hope this is as fun playing online and offline.

    Waiting to see what other people think of it, without a demo i'm being cautious.

    Post what you think of it when it arrives.

    Will be getting it, just undecided whether to get it on PC or PS3 at the moment, will wait and see whether the console makes too many compromises first, it wOuld likely be the easiest platform for me as I'll probably have my wheel hooked up for GT5.

    hOPING for demos to drop to help make my mind uo,

    Might get it depends if it is fun. Racing games often focus on having good graphics or how realistic they want to be but don't end up being fun!

    This looks awesome, but I think a wheel is needed to do it justice. Hurtling round Spa is enough for me. :D

    I'm not sure but all the promotional footage was initially with the 09 cars, but it always had text saying it would ship with 2010 teams etc, there may be options to change season but the default is 2010.

    the very strict licensing conditions prevent them from putting anyting other than 2010 cars and liveries, agreed at a point in time earlier on in the year. No DLC is planned for upgrades or team changes/driver changes etc, BUT there will be a follow up F1 2011 next year, by the same dev team, which should serve as the "upgrade" version.

    there are some good interviews with the devs over on F1fanatic...:

    enjoy!
